To be supported through this difficult time! Our mentors & faculty will offer a fresh perspective with the challenges you’re facing and explore solutions. The level of mentoring will be decided by you and your mentor after your initial meeting. The initial meeting will be 30 mins. Nothing more is expected from either party but further mentoring can be mutually agreed upon.
We’ll send you an email with our list of mentors and some background information along with contact details. Review the mentors for the best fit and reach out to that mentor directly.
Yes, our focus is on startups and small businesses.
A suggested process:
It depends. We recommend reaching out to 1 or 2 mentors and connecting accordingly. We understand some mentors may not be as available. However, please do not reach out to more than 1 or 2 mentors as there’s a high need for our local ventures to get help.
We suggest you take full advantage of mentoring opportunities as they arise when needed. Our mentors have worked with us at CU for many years and our faculty are world-class entrepreneurs so we’re confident in their ability to help. However, you may not find the correct fit and we certainly suggest you reach out to other mentoring opportunities when available.
Each mentee that is accepted into the program will receive a list of all of our mentors. The mentee will do their own matching and reach out to mentors accordingly. We know it’s not the most sophisticated process at the moment but our entrepreneurs need help now. Further functionality will be introduced as we grow the program.
The expectation is a minimum of a 30-minute conversation to provide a fresh perspective and help where possible. It’s up to you and your mentee to determine if any further mentoring would be helpful, needed or wanted.
First, thank you for helping to this level! Second, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know to pause your mentoring. We’ll simply hide your information until you’re ready to jump back in.
To give back to our local and Colorado ventures who need help during this crisis. There are many different mentoring opportunities and please do engage with what you believe to be the best fit. Our mentors are excited to be engaged with activities and the community at CU and other universities through the state of Colorado.
